The great American author Daniel Quinn once said; “I prefer to think about problems the way engineers do. If a valve doesn’t work, they don’t say, “Well, we must have valves, so let’s try two valves.” If a valve doesn’t work, they say, “Well, what would work?” Their rule is if it doesn’t work, don’t do it more, do something else.” If a valve doesn’t work, bad things can happen and that is why this organisation is focused on the manufacture and supply of specialty machined components for critical applications within oil and gas, defence, power, chemical, and pharmaceutical. The group has a turnover of multi-millions globally and are now looking to strengthen their United States sales team with the addition of a first-class Technical Business Development Manager to focus on developing strong relationships with valve OEM’s who support the oil and gas sector.
